Having been an avid reader of the NME for nearly 40 years I love to read the published works of anyone who has worked on that august journal. Mr Maconie worked there for some time (as did Andrew Collins - check out his books too)

This book also covers a similar period in the UK when I grew up, although Stuart Maconie is slightly younger than me

It is at times incredibly funny and delivers a great insight into the way a music paper operates. There are some great anecdotes about a number of starts too, my favourites of which were Stuart's time with Mick Hucknall, Napalm Death and Mark E Smith, not all at the same time though!

So if you like Maconie, the NME or indeed music I think you'll enjoy this book

Douglas Bought it for my 20-year-old nephew's Christmas to go on his pile. I am put off Maconie's next book cos from the reviews he seems to take a Lancashire attitude and denigrates Yorkshire.
